Developing Your Unique Color Vision in a Journal

How can you achieve your own color style, unique and stunning every time? Know yourself first.  Don’t be disappointed by using other people’s color choices in your quilts.  And rote practice of color theory without combining it with your personal preferences results in quilts that look like a color study.
